Welcome

Welcome to Smuljungle Aalst

You may have heard it already, but bARK.today is spreading its wings and landing you ahead in Sint-Job in Aalst. We get the City of Aalst a unique opportunity to make this place the ‘Best’ place in Aalst.

Our mission is to get everyone excited about turning their boring piece of lawn into a biodiverse ‘Food Jungle’. Others call it food forest or food forest, but that sometimes deters. While edible tasty fruit trees, berries, nuts, … you can only mouth water.

But the best thing is to do it together. Because alone is just alone. We light the fire, but sooner or later that place will be yours.
Everyone can participate, young & old, mobile and not so mobile, schools of associations,…

Are you interested?
